Marvel Studios Countdown: Meet the Twins From 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'

16 March 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

We may have met “the twins” in Captain America: The Winter Soldier’s post-credits bit, but we won’t find out how they fit into the Marvel Cinematic Universe until Avengers: Age of Ultron, which is approaching, well, as fast as Quicksilver. Yes, he’s the showstopper from X-Men: Days of Future Past, but don’t get confused - the Quicksilver in the Avengers sequel is a completely different take bearing the same name (just like how multiple actors have played Superman, but not the same version of Superman). We’ll also get Scarlet Witch, an Avengers mainstay who has been the centerpiece of some of the biggest comic book storylines of all time.   Who created the twins and when was their first appearance? Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created...

Trailer Trashin': Analyzing the Avengers: Age of Ultron Trailer

13 March 2015 10:53 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

With the release this weekend of both Disney’s live-action Cinderella and the Liam Neeson actioner Run All Night, we’re finally out of the early-year movie doldrums. And as I’ve said many times, dear readers, it’s never too early to look forward to what’s coming out. In that spirit, this week’s Trailer Trashin’ column takes another look at the first big movie of summer 2015, Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Premise: With S.H.I.E.L.D. destroyed and the Avengers needing a hiatus from stopping threats, Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) attempts to jump-start a dormant peacekeeping program with Ultron (James Spader), a self-aware, self-teaching, artificial intelligence. But the plan backfires when Ultron decides that humans are the real enemy and sets out to eradicate them from the Earth, and it is up to Iron Man, Steve Rogers/Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Bruce »

'Avengers 2' Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver Posters

13 March 2015 10:18 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A few weeks ago, the stars of Avengers: Age of Ultron took to their respective Twitter pages to debut new character posters for this highly-anticipated Marvel Phase Two sequel, in theaters May 1. Today, the poster roll-out continues with the latest actors to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver and Elizabeth Olsen as his sister Scarlet Witch. Since all of the main Avengers character posters have been revealed, we'll have to wait and see if Marvel brings out a poster for the villainous Ultron (James Spader) or Vision (Paul Bettany).

Avengers: Age of Ultron is the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time, 2012's Marvel's The Avengers. When Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth's Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), The Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow »

12 March 2015 9:26 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Further to Marvel Studios filming certain sequences of "The Avengers" sequel, "Avengers: Age Of Ultron", in Cape Town, South Africa, reports continue to surface that Marvel Comics' superhero 'T-Challa' aka 'Black Panther' (Chadwick Boseman) is introduced in the new film:

"The Avengers: Age of Ultron" production hired 'extras' for a location shoot in Cape Town.

"Filming in South Africa provides the 'Avengers' an opportunity to seek out 'T'Challa' aka 'Black Panther'...

"...whose homeland of 'Wakanda' exports 'vibranium', a metal alloy coveted by 'Ultron'...

"...that was compounded with 'adamantium' to make Captain America's original triangular shield. 

"The disc-shaped shield currently used by Cap is made of pure vibranium..."

Created by writer-editor Stan Lee and illustrator-co-plotter Jack Kirby for Marvel Comics, 'Black Panther' debuted in "Fantastic Four" #52 (July 1966), as the first black superhero in mainstream comics.

12 landmark performance capture turns: From Ahmed Best to Andy Serkis

7 March 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

As VFX technology marches on at speed, more and more of our favourite movie characters are being brought to life by actors driving a performance capture digital creation.

Though Andy Serkis's Caesar from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Sharlto Copley's Chappie sit at the cutting edge today, in its current form it actually stretches back nearly 20 years to Star Wars's much-maligned Jar Jar Binks.

Go back even further and take into account rotoscoping - animators drawing over an actors' performance frame-by-frame - it's possible to mark Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs as a landmark film in 1937. There, an actress was used as the basis for the titular princess.

Fast forward to 2015, and we're now at a point where many in the industry are calling for an 'Assisted Performance' Oscars category to recognise the work done by actors and VFX artists.

Goddard To Helm "Spider-Man" Reboot?

2 March 2015 10:27 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

A new report over at Latino Review suggests that "Cabin in the Woods" scribe Drew Goddard, who was originally slated to write and direct the "Spider-Man" spin-off "Sinister Six," will now instead direct the upcoming Sony/Marvel Studios-sanctioned reboot of the "Spider-Man" franchise.

With Marvel now in on the film and former producer Avi Arad essentially out (he'll retain a name credit), their sources claim the plan is to produce a new trilogy of films which could go by the moniker "Spectacular Spider-Man".

The previous Spider-Man verse films in the works will all be phased out, whilst Goddard's work on "Sinister Six" so far could well be reincorporated into the reboot as the plan is to apparently do a story involving Spidey versus the Sinister Six.

A major part of the first film is said to involve Spider-Man fighting Iron Man and then trying to pass the 'audition' to join the Avengers, »

Marvel's 'Spider-Man': What Did the Sony Hack Reveal?

12 February 2015 2:26 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, superhero fans got the news they've been waiting several years for, with Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures solidifying a deal that finally brings Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The official announcement revealed that the new Spidey will be introduced in an upcoming Marvel movie, which, according to several different reports is Captain America: Civil War, before a brand new stand alone Spider-Man adventure, produced by Marvel's Kevin Feige and Sony's Amy Pascal, which is set for release on July 28, 2017.

As you may well know, late last year, when thousands of internal documents were leaked from the Sony hack, some of those documents gave us a glimpse into Sony's plans for the web-crawler, which are well worth examining once more, now that the deal has gone through after several months of negotiations. While some of these details have since been confirmed others have not, so we'll have to »

Does Hugh Jackman believe Wolverine can join the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

11 February 2015 2:26 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

New York - Monday night's announcement that Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios had come to an agreement to bring Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (aka the "Avengers" Universe) set Hollywood and movie fans into a tizzy over the possibilities.  Spider-Man had been, effectively, on his own island since Sony controlled the big screen rights to the Web Slinger.  Now, he can join his fellow "Avengers" in whatever cinematic adventures that might bring. What many fans might not realize is that Spider-Man has only been an Avenger in the Marvel Comic Book Universe for about 10 years.  Moreover, Spidey wasn't the only big name to join these "new" Avengers at the time.  The Avengers also brought a major mutant force, Wolverine, into the fold.  Everyone's favorite "X-Men" member is part of a third Marvel Mutant Universe controlled by 20th Century Fox.  The chances of Fox making a deal with Marvel Studios »

Why Sony Called in Marvel’s Big Gun to Reboot ‘Spider-Man’

9 February 2015 11:07 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After Sony attempted to reboot its “Spider-Man” franchise with Andrew Garfield as the web slinger, the studio is ready to give it a third try, this time with Kevin Feige, the man who has produced 10 consecutive blockbusters for Marvel Studios.

A deal to free up Spider-Man to appear in the Marvel cinematic universe, starting in 2017, is a clear admission by Sony that its superhero strategy with one of the most popular comicbook heroes around simply isn’t working.

That’s especially true at a time when the studio is desperate for some major film franchises. Struggling with one of the comicbook industry’s most popular superheroes was starting to get embarrassing — especially when “Guardians of the Galaxy,” starring a cast of misfits unknown to most moviegoers, broke out as a bigger hit in 2014 than the last “Spider-Man” movie when it made $774 million. “The Amazing Spider Man 2″ earned nearly $709 million worldwide. »

Amy Pascal’s Exit Could Affect Sony’s Spider-Man Franchise, ‘Dragon Tattoo’

5 February 2015 2:31 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Amy Pascal’s departure as co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment and chairman of its motion picture group leaves Hollywood unsettled over the fate of the studio’s upcoming slate.

The biggest questions at Sony surround the Spider-Man franchise, sequels to the “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” and the “Cleopatra” project.

It could take several months at the minimum before the post-Pascal priorities come into focus. And of course much depends on who her successor turns out to be. If Pascal’s top lieutenant, SPE Motion Picture Group president Doug Belgrad, gets the gig as many expect, there could be minimal changes to the line-up.

Pascal will remain in place through May, at which point she will segue to a producing deal at Sony. Besides Belgrad, other possible replacements from within are former Fox studio chief Tom Rothman, who runs TriStar Pictures; and Columbia Pictures Production President Michael De Luca, who »
